Sue Kahler wins 2019 NEWGA Championship

Peter Doherty from the Times Union wrote about Sue Kahler winning the 2019 NEWGA championship.


It had been 12 years since Sue Kahler last won a Northeastern Women’s Golf Association title, and when she returned to the winner’s circle Tuesday, one of her first calls was to a friend who got her interested.

Kahler, a Ballston Spa member, cruised to an eight-stroke victory in the 36-hole NEWGA Championship at McGregor Links. She checked in with Suzie Mansfield, a longtime NEWGA member who has been battling skin cancer.

“I wouldn’t be playing golf in this area if it weren’t for her,” Kahler said. “I met a number of people in a health department golf league way back in 1989, and they asked me if I’d like to join them, and I said yes.
